Bonnie Milligan & Natalie Walker CELEBRATE FIFTY YEARS OF FRIENDSHIP-OCTOBER 11 AT 7:00 PM

This performance will also be livestreamed through BroadwayWorld Events. For tickets and more information, click here.

Bonnie Milligan and Natalie Walker performed their first duo show Bonnie Milligan and Natalie Walker Were Always Supposed To Do A Show On September 6th And Have Been Planning It For Months at Feinstein's/54 Below on September 6, 2019. BroadwayWorld said they were "two glorious belters who would likely benefit from a nice long session in group therapy" and "twins from a different mother (if one of the mothers was say, Shelley Duvall circa 1976 and the other Kathleen Turner circa 2004) [who] have that rare and unlikely stage magic together that brings to mind electric duos like Judy and Barbra / Julie and Carol / The Captain and Tennille."

The world has changed so much in the decades that have passed since then*, but Milligan and Walker are ready to bravely rejoin it. On October 11, 2021, the duo will be coaxed out of their retirement homes and back to their old stomping ground, like the end of A League of Their Own but with less sports and more singing which I guess is just Follies. Join the women as they take their calcium supplements and subsequently the stage to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of their historic partnership. The set list will run the gamut from things you would want them to sing to things you don't know you want them to sing but do actually want them to sing. Cheer loudly to drown out the sound of their creaking bones.

*we dedicate this show to the loving memory of our cherished friend Characters Bar and Grill

Melissa Errico SINGS HER NEW YORK, FEAT. Max von Essen-OCTOBER 16 AT 7:00 PM

"The only credential the city asked was the boldness to dream. For those who did, it unlocked its gates and its treasures, not caring who they were or where they came from." - Moss Hart

Born in New York, raised in the suburbs, fully blossomed on Broadway, and always in love with Moss Hart's words... in this show, Melissa Errico will sing of those New York dreams and New York gates, of New York frustrations and New York fulfillments.

Reaching into her personal songbook box - Sondheim, Comden & Green, Joni Mitchell -and accompanied by her incomparable longtime partner, the poetic jazz pianist Tedd Firth, she will celebrate the city of rushing pasts, cancelled lunches and hurried loves, of Broadway dreams and beautiful solitudes.

Melissa begins her concert story with an Italian family's immigrant dreams, colorful tales of Mott Street, hatcheck girls & the Ziegfeld Follies. She continues on into a twelve-year old's epiphany watching On Your Toes-who then finds herself starring in My Fair Lady a decade later in that same theater! And, as another hundred people come to mind, Melissa sings songs by the classic songwriters who celebrate our complex and inimitable and back-to-life town.

As she always does, Melissa will pay particular attention to women's experience and women writers, from a swinging "Wished on The Moon" by one of The New Yorker's most original intellectuals, Dorothy Parker, to Georgia Stitt's and Marcy Heisler's haunting love song of today's East Village, "The Wanting of You." From the glory of the uptown downtown rush to the recent years of shutdowns and backwards blessings -- from "Another Hundred People" through "Lonely Town" - Melissa will sing the real and secret New York, the New York of private exaltations and public bumping-intos.

Songs will include Sondheim's "The Little Things You Do Together," Joni Mitchell's "Chelsea Morning"... and of course, look for Melissa's own Manhattan essentials, from Rodgers & Hart "Manhattan" itself through "The Way You Look Tonight," which she once danced to with her mentor in Central Park. Expect a kiss goodnight, too, and a wish for a peaceful and joyful "Autumn in New York."

Featuring Melissa Errico and Max von Esse, with Caroline Moore as Maestra Percussionist.

$55 cover charge. $70-$95 premium seating. $25 food & beverage minimum.

IF IT ONLY EVEN RUNS A MINUTE CELEBRATES THE UNDERAPPRECIATED MUSICALS OF Hal Prince-OCTOBER 18 AT 7:00 PM & 9:45 PM

Sometimes Broadway musicals run forever, like Cats or Les Misérables. But sometimes, Broadway musicals run for only a minute, like Merrily We Roll Along, High Fidelity, or Via Galactica. This is their story.

If It Only Even Runs A Minute is the Bistro Award-winning concert series celebrating rare songs, behind-the-scenes tales, and inspiring photos from underappreciated musicals. Created and hosted by Feinstein's/54 Below Creative & Programming Director Jennifer Ashley Tepper and Book of Mormon's Kevin Michael Murphy, with musical direction by Dan Garmon, each concert includes performances and stories from original cast members and writers of selected featured shows, as well as new interpretations.

The 18th edition of the concert series will be its very first with a theme: The Underappreciated Musicals of Hal Prince. During his legendary career, Prince changed Broadway forever, directing and producing shows that astonished audiences, broke new ground, and altered our idea of what theatre could be. Many of these shows became landmark hits - but what about the ones that didn't?

In this special edition of Runs A Minute, experience stories about and songs from Hal's underappreciated musicals - the ones that took risks, flew high, changed lives - and closed too soon. How did Merrily and Superman, Grind and Flora, Tickets, Please! and The Petrified Prince, shape the career of one of Broadway's most influential artists, even though his name is in the history books because of Cabaret and Phantom, Fiddler and Sweeney?

The 18th edition of Runs A Minute will feature performances from an amazing lineup of Broadway stars to be announced. Expect original cast and team members from Hal's shows, new interpretations of songs that have never been recorded, and a celebration of the man who inspired generations of theatergoers and theatermakers with his shows, no matter how long they ran.

Previous editions of Runs A Minute have played at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, Caroline's on Broadway, The Laurie Beechman Theatre, Joe's Pub and Le Poisson Rouge. So far, the series has included over 300 performers and over 200 featured musicals, as well as many songs that have never before been recorded.
